See You Next Tuesday: Looney Tunes Special
As you'd expect it's all Looney Tunes everything in the Oaf HQ this week and our See You Next Tuesday feature isn't escaping the Loonism. This week we take a Looney Tunes inspired approach as we bring you a host of things that have caught our eyes over the past 7 days. 1. INTERNET SENSATIONS: Space Jams Website. Untouched since it was originally created in 1996, the Space Jam Website is a pretty cool internet time capsule taking you into a world of pre millennium internet. Navigating around the site with it's lo-res graphics and layout will give you a nice bit of internet nostalgia. Take a look by visiting the site here. 2. FOOD FAVOURITES: Bugs Bunny Lolly....Sort of. Inaccurate representations of cartoons on food products is always amusing and on the scale of things we're not sure what likeliness rating these ice creams from Blue Bunny get (2/10?) but oh how we are still desperately jealous that these can't be bought in the UK... or can they? Tweet us if you know any better... 3. WINDOW SHOPPING: Looney Tunes USB Drives. Everyone loves a novelty product and nearly everyone could always do with a little extra storage. Handy for us then that Emtec Electronics know how to combine the two. Available online from Amazon in a variety of characters and sizes (8GB / 16GB) if you're in the market for a USB stick today's your lucky day.. 4. MEDIA MATTERS: Fine Tooning; Restoring The Warner Bros cartoons. Looney Tunes hasn't earned the right to be described as one of the most culturally significant animations just by chance. First created in the 1930's it remained a staple in what was the golden years of animation in the USA. As part of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD boxset Ned Price (VP Mastering Warner Bros Technical Operations Inc) talks about how and why this restoration project is taking place.
